The video is behind the link. Basically two women were stopped jaywalking. Officials say one was "verbally antagonistic toward the officer," when one woman started walking away. The officer "escorted" her back, which means he grabbed her by the arm and dragged her back. Then she started yelling at him and pull away. The second girl intervened and he socked her.
Here's the funny part:
"Seattle police have not reviewed the video of the incident."
But the best part I think, is that the public surrounds the scene with camera phones.
In this lovely video, the violent psycho (aka police officer) decides that punching a young woman in the face over an incident involving a jaywalking ticket is the appropriate level of force. It isn't just a little smack either, he winds up and hits her full in the face with a closed fist. Seattle Police Officers Guild President Rich O'Neil says the officer's use of force was appropriate.....
A Metro passenger used his cell phone's video camera to capture a confrontation between a woman and two LA County sheriff's deputies on a bus in Bellflower. The over aggressive sheriff's punch, to a young woman's face wasn't even necessary. Then the dirty sheriff, wants to take the cell phone, of the soldier who recorded it. Just imagine how much other dirt is hidden, and covered up by dirty cops.
A military veteran returned home after six years to witness the "freedom" he was protecting when he got on a bus near Los Angeles. He witnessed (and recorded) an encounter between police and a mentally handicapped resident wherein the police verbally abused the lady before one of the officers punched her in the face. After the incident, police then attempted to confiscate the video, but the veteran successfully stood his ground. Of course no investigation has begun into this abuse of police power.
